This footage is believed to have been taken outside a restaurant in Spain, and shows a young infant aged 3 or 4, sitting in a man's lap, drinking from a glass of alcohol.

A cigarette is then put into the child's mouth and men can be heard encouraging him to smoke, with one voice remarking "This is what being a real man is all about."

The unbelievable clip was shared on Facebook yesterday by a Romanian man who appealed for members of the public to identify the two adults in the video.

Some commenter's remarked that the man who put the lit cigarette into the child's mouth is his father.

Another poster, Mihaela Stanciu, said:

"There should be an exam for everyone who wants to have a child".

"If you fail, you can't have them."

Doina Dicu, one of a number of individuals who voiced their outrage regarding the video on Facebook, said:

"'This man has to lose his parental rights. Childcare officials should do something."
